Dr Stella Adadevoh I had known you… and within that period, I knew that you were a gem, an honorable woman, a sister, a friend, and a doctor different from the rest.  You keep your side of the deal always just the way you made sure I stopped smoking.

Had Dr Stella Adadevoh discharged Patrick Sawyer, which she could have done so easily for her own safety, Ebola could have been ravaging Nigeria by now. But she said NO. She assumed the responsibility to protect you and me from Patrick Sawyer and his deadly disease.

She took on the responsibility to protect her nation, put the life of her compatriots ahead of her own. Aware of the risks involved in treating an Ebola patient, she did not run. She refused to run and rather preferred to shed her own nationalist blood for the sake and survival of all Nigerians.

A savior indeed you are. You are my HERO, an embodiment of courage, kindness and love, a true Amazon, a RARE GEM. You are my dear friend.  You gave your all that others may be spared the agony. You paid the ultimate price because you would not abandon your patient even in the face of danger.

Your Christ like nature overwhelms us .no greater love than this. With your very life, you made a supreme sacrifice but saved a nation from the ominous Ebola epidemic!  Your sacrifice will not be in vain, your action was selfless and only God can reward you for the sacrifice you made for us Nigerians….  I am still in deep shock following the news of your death

Fare thee well our hero, SIS as I fondly called you.

You will forever live on in the hearts of millions of Nigerians

Dr Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, adieu. Adieu, great soul… adieu.

    I did not know her before her death, but i still feel very sad each day i remember she died because SUYER decided to bring death to Nigeria. She died because she stood for the right thing. She died because she was a true professional. I wish i could have a go at the SUYER and would personally pour a concentrated and corrosive acid on him.
    Adieu good doctor. God will console those you left behind.
